    Rendrick Taylor should not have been cut early. If Lorig gets hurt we need to get Taylor in there. Taylor could use the reps in the next game. Taylor successively blocked for a top back who now plays in the NFL when he was at Clemson, and he has shown soft hands to catch the ball out of the backfield, and even has the ability to juke a little bit on the run and can take the ball in short yardage situations and get a first down or touchdown just like Earnest Graham did so well for us against the Dolphins. He should have been able to show those talents in the last game, but perhaps the Bucs plan to get him on their practice squad and didn't really want to showcase him for other teams. The other cut I disagree with is Saunders. He has such quickness he looked better running the ball for us than Preston Parker. Hopefully we will get him on our practice squad too. He has the speed to be a good gunner on special teams as well. Yes he is a little short for a wide receiver but look at his production for W.Va., and what a job Stroughter has done for us at only 5'10"!

    Center Geurode got cut today from Dallas because of salary cap issures. I am sure we could sign him. We need a legit back up Center because zuttah should be starting at LG.

    We could - but why would you think we would? The Bucs' TV money will go to pay off a loan on a soccer team, not to put a winner on the field in Tampa.

    Lee is not going anywhere, at worst a back-up. This first round of cuts is a firecracker when compared to the musroom cloud where 27 men must be cut to get down to 53 coming soon. It is going to be brutal. Keep your kids off the street !!

    There is something going on with Lee that we don't know about, physically, or mentally he is not the player he was lst year. He has sucked the big one in his play and with penalties. Why wouldn't the Bucs try to upgrade that position. There has to be a ton of players getting cut that can do better than what he has shown.

    Lee is now a short timer, they will try hard to replace him.

    We are deep at receiver, but yeah, I liked Sanders' play as well. Rendrick Taylor is a little surprising (just a little). I briefly thought "James Lee" would make an appearance, but even driving home after Saturday night I knew we needed him for depth, otherwise....

    They better pick up some OL that have get cut, as RT, G and C are all thin on talent.

    No surprise names here, I hope Jock Sanders gets on the practice squad.
